Breakfast of Champions

by Sherry Lewis-Ramirez on February 9, 2012

Eating a high Protein breakfast before competition can lead to feeling sluggish and tired on the golf course.  Conversely, a high carbohydrate breakfast can give you an immediate burst of energy, but it won’t last long.  J.L. prefers a meal with a balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat which provides plenty of sustained energy to prepare him for a round of golf. The following recipe is a new favorite of J.L. and Dawn’s.

Warm Gingery Oatmeal


2 cups filtered water or non-dairy milk for creamier texture

1 cup gluten-free rolled oats or quinoa flakes

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup goji berries

2 teaspoons grated ginger

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 tablespoon agave nectar


1. Bring water to boil.

2. Add oats, raisins, goji berries, ginger and a pinch of salt.

3. Reduce heat to low.

4. Cook until water is absorbed and oats become creamy, about 7 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and add sunflower seeds and agave nectar.
